3 stars Formed in late-70's,MEDINA AZAHARA are still active nowadays and belong among the great names of Spanish rock in general.However,their debut album holds enough prog elements to be listed as a progressive one.Heavily influenced by TRIANA's style,this work is a very interesting mix of synth-based hard rock,dominated by melodic guitars,romantic vocals and an emotional atmosphere.Hardly you'll find any flamenco guitars (except at some rare moments),but guitarist Miguel Galan's style is too close to andalusian flamenco-based prog,while the Molina brothers' rhythm section adapts a simple yet soundful style.Another important late-70's release with symphonic leanings,amazing melodies and a deeply emotional atmosphere...Not exactly highly recommended but a decent 3-star addition to any prog collection.
